Dan Gregory Resigns Columbia City Pastorate

This past Sunday Dan Gregory, pastor of Community of Hope Grace Brethren Church in Columbia City, Indiana, read a letter of resignation that included the following:

“It has been a privilege to serve our Lord and King for the last 13 years as the pastor of this congregation. It has always and will always be my desire to cooperate with Jesus Christ in what is best for the building of His kingdom here and across the globe.

"My desire has been to do what is best for Community of Hope even if it was not easy. There have been many times we have traveled a path that was anything but easy but it was right! I believe God has brought us to another one of those paths today.

"Today I am announcing my resignation as the pastor of Community of Hope Grace Brethren Church effective July, 2008. This decision has come as the result of much prayer, soul searching, and counsel. I believe that God has incredible things in store for this congregation."

Community of Hope is a church that just 14 years ago was near closure and today is a vibrant ministry of more than 300 people including many new believers in Jesus Christ. God has used Dan to lead the church through many blessings and transition points during this time. Pray for the church as they seek God’s direction for this next phase.
